COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — South Carolina officials are returning to in-car road tests for driver’s licenses as the number of COVID-19 cases across the state declines.

Starting Monday, the Department of Motor Vehicles will have walk-in tests in the morning and take appointments for driving tests in the afternoon on its website.

After COVID-19 cases began spiking again in August, the department gave driving tests with the applicant driving alone in the car while an agency workers scored the test from outside the vehicle.
